Water Damage Cleanup Requires The Right Equipment

Water Damage Water Damage Cleanup Requires The Right Equipment Water damage from floods can be minimized with proper and swift action

To restore your basement and property from water damage and to keep your water damage losses to a minimum requires the proper water extraction equipment. The right water extraction tools for the job are vital for timely restoration and for drying basements, structures, and property in the way that’s most effective. Here’s a quick review of some of the expertise and equipment necessary.

Using Psychrometrics To Fight Water Damage
Psychrometry is the study of air and its properties (temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, dew point, etc.). To minimize basement water damage and water damage elsewhere you must have accurate measurements of the air conditions so you can create the right atmosphere for efficient drying. Water damage restoration contractors know how to control temperature and humidity levels. Doing so maximizes drying conditions without causing secondary damage through an improper drying process.

Water damage cleanup companies like SERVPRO use equipment like moisture sensors, moisture meters, and thermohygrometers to define how much moisture has been absorbed. We also use advanced equipment to verify that your basement or other environment has dried thoroughly.

Water Damage Resolved By Extraction, Air Moving, and Deodorizing Equipment
The most effective way to remove moisture from a basement or structure is extraction. By removing the water quickly the environment dries much faster. SERVPRO uses extractors to clean carpets, upholstery, and floors after water damage. Our air moving and dehumidification equipment speed up evaporation. And SERVPRO’s deodorization equipment produces a mist that penetrates sites where odor-causing residues accumulate. Our water extraction teams also use ultra low volume foggers to inject fungicides and disinfectants into wall cavities and other hard to reach places.

The right tools are vital for restoring your water damaged basement, property, and possessions to the best possible condition. But more important is the water extraction team. Our teams thoroughly understand how to dry basements, structures, and personal property effectively.
